Website Maintenance

Website Maintenance

A website is a lot of work. You put so much time into preparing for it, make sure you keep things in check! Ensuring your website is backed up and updated is extremely important. A website that goes without updates and doesn’t have backups running, is very vulnerable.

The updates that get pushed out are for protection and security. Making sure your website is up to date is not an option but a necessity. But even if your website is updated, things can still happen. When those things do happen, make sure you’ve got a backup in place to ensure low downtime. Oh, and don’t rely on your host for backups. Instead, make sure you’ve got someone running and downloading your backups. You’ll be glad you have that part covered in an emergency, trust me.

Don’t know how to keep things in tip top shape? That’s where Corvid.Studio comes in. Helping clients with website maintenance is a specialty. Ease of mind is priceless when you know your website is being looked after and maintained.

Corvid.Studio web maintenance plans include

  • Monthly or Quarterly Plans:
    Whether your website is big or small, Corvid.Studio has a maintenance plan that will work for you. If you don’t see what you need on the plans page, give me a call, drop me a line or send a message and I can get a plan customized for your needs.
  • Security Monitoring:
    Keeping an eye on your website is part of the maintenance service. This includes making sure files are not being modified or altered without authorization, setting up protocols to divert brute force attacks (I’ve got some tricks up my sleeve) and overall monitoring of the site.
  • Updates:
    If your company’s website uses a CMS (WordPress, Joomla!, Magento, etc), there are always updates that need to be performed. Whether the updates are for the main files of the CMS (called core files), plugins/modules/extensions or theme files, keeping updates current is an important step in maintaining a website. Some of these updates contain security patches for protection.
  • Backups:
    If there is ever an emergency, having a backup on hand is priceless. There are some hosts that offer this service, with access to the backups readily available. The majority of the time, this isn’t true. Some hosts say they take backups of the website, but actually getting your hands on the full backup can take time — time you might not have. I’ve heard some stories in which the backup files were not received for a week or more, and in website-land-time, that’s too long. And even if your host does send you a copy of the backup files, do you know what to do with them?
  • Uptime Monitoring:
    Are you tired of finding out your website is down from your visitors? I will be tracking the uptime/downtime of your website with a maintenance plan in place. It can be normal for a website to have a few hiccups now and then but I’ll warn you if I see your website down for more than 10 minutes. After I contact you, I take a look into why your website is down and when the host expects things to be back up and running. It is an important step to add me as a technical person on the hosting plan. This will give the host the approval to communicate with me. If you have a current maintenance plan with Corvid.Studio, this is already taken care of.
  • Discounted Updates and Development Costs:
    I appreciate your business and with every website maintenance plan, you get a discounted rate on additional website updates/edits and support services. This means that if you need something updated on your website, you can get this service at a discounted rate.
